A Burned-Out Car Hidden in the Forest Yields the Bodies of Two Women Missing Near Yosemite National Park
So, for the Sund and Pelosso families, the agonizing uncertainty continues. On March 21 agents led Carole Sund's parents, Carole and Francis Carrington, and Silvina's parents, Raquel and José Pelosso, down a muddy trail to the place where the car had been found, 84 miles from Yosemite. There the four wept, prayed and laid a floral cross. "They were cut off in the prime of life," says Carole Carrington, 64, of the victims. "Julie was so excited about growing up. She had filled out an application for her driver's license. We need to find out who did this."
Investigators say that could take time. They have yet to find a third body, and the FBI has not publicly named any suspects in the case. But after a month of living in a motel near search headquarters in Modesto, the Pelossos, who run a soft-drink bottling plant in Argentina, have arrived at one conclusion. Given the unstinting generosity of strangers who have given them food and clothing, Raquel says the killers could not be typical Americans. "Where do they come from?" she asks. "Hell, I think."
